True. That must of sucked man. On the brink of history. We had a similar situation in the early 90s. We were going for a three peat and had the lead with little time left. Roger Craig fumbled and Giants drove down and kicked a FG instead, killing the shot at a three peat and history.
But i think going 18-1 would be the worst pain. I bet you guys figuered you would win by at least 21 huh? I sure did. LOL
That doofus has strange luck i tellz yah. I've seen him pull more miricle plays out of his ass and escape interceptions then any QB since Favre.
Nope. I was more nervous about those playoffs more than any other before. We were destroying teams through the first 10 weeks, then it felt like teams were starting to figure us out and the margin of victory dwindled. I'm a diehard fan of the game. I don't only watch Pats games and predict 35 point blowouts. Team was 16-0, and law of averages said we were bound to lose at some point. I honestly remember having bad dreams about Fred Taylor and Jones-Drew running wild against us in the divisional round haha.
Pretty sure that game has me scarred for life. As soon as we were installed as 9.5 point favorites against the Ravens I felt we were trouble. It just played into their "No respect" mantra...which, as you probably know by now, is what guided the Giants in 2007 and 2011.
